For the Birds

Here is a submission for Carly's Monday Photo Shoot....the subject is "Birds". You can check out her blog over yonder.
This is how Carly describes the assignment:

EMPS #25: BIRDS.Flying BIRDS. Nesting BIRDS. Gooney BIRDS. Looney BIRDS. Real BIRDS. Stuffed BIRDS, both the toy and the sustenance. BIRDS with winter plumage, BIRDS taking a bath. BIRDS and their babies. BIRDS all alone. BIRDS in their houses. Red BIRDS. Black BIRDS. Bald BIRDS. BIRDS on a wire. Real BIRDS. Fake BIRDS. BIRDS.Extra Credit: My favorite bird is the Snowy Egret, like the one you see above. I would like to see either an Egret or a Heron, but if you don't happen to have them in your area, any white BIRD will do as well. :)


Note: Is it just me, or does Carly remind you of Bubba from Forrest Gump when he talked about types of Shrimp?? LOL!








Oh and for extra credit, she wants an egret or a heron. Hmmmm.... I'll have to take a look and maybe do an extra post. Be back soon!!

The hawk in flight is one especially beautiful image,the one in the tree...seek, wait and pounce comes to mind.
My favorites are those little black cap chick-a-dees...precious.
Thanks for sharing..TJ

Forest Gump eh?

Lippy said...

The first thing I have to do is say that at this moment I am watching Forrest Gump! Believe it!

Then I have to say that this is some of your finest work. Your talent is enviable, to say the least. Awesome shots.

Perfect photos of very difficult subjects to capture. The hawk in flight is fantastic.

These are fantastic! I love the hawk... brings back memories of our bird shot (attempts!) at the garden.
